Screen moves to the right!

The screen for what ever reason keeps moving to the right. This happens for no reason that I could think of. Every time I try to swipe it back to the center, it just wants to move back again, on its own. Is the screen faulty?

Ya mine does the same thing when I plug it in. Its my first day with the phone, but I thought I read somewhere else that these phones act funny when they are plugged in.

as far as the screen moving,, as bassace said , yup sounds like optical trackpad needs cleaning with a clean lint free cloth

Clean the optical trackpad.

This is exactly what the culprit is. The optical trackpad on the dinc is extremely annoying. I've searched forever for a way to turn it off but I found a better solution:

1. I took a piece of scotch tape and taped it over the optical trackpad.
2. I took a precision blade and cut the tape so that it only covered the circular trackpad.
3. That's it! It no longer moves on its own and if I need to use it the tape still allows enough light through to pick up on movement. At first I was concerned about the tape falling off but it's been on there since last July without any problems.

Note: Make sure to use the "cloudy" tape instead of the crystal clear kind.

This happened to me last year. No matter how many times I cleaned the optical trackpad, the screen wouldn't stop jumping around. My Dinc was rooted and I flashed a custom ROM. But even after unrooting and reverting back to the stock ROM, the problem still persisted. In the end, Verizon sent me a refurb. (Which sucked because I had to give up my AMOLED screen for a ****ty LCD screen.)
